I just freshly installed FreeBSD, and have a few problems with X. It doesn't detect my mouse at all. I tried xorgconfig, but that just makes it worse (X won't even start). Does anybody know a possible fix? My mouse is just a simple wireless three-button.

Copy that to /etc/X11/XF86Config or /root/xorg.conf.new depending on the what version FreeBSD you are using.


You may have to change the video card or chipset information.

Thanks for the help, but a quick R of TFM and subsequent Xorg -configure did the trick. I got X and Fluxbox running fine.
